Hear an exclusive cut from a forthcoming reissue of Erasure's 'Wild!', which turns 30 this year

Erasure are reissuing their 1989 classic Wild! later this year, to mark its 30th anniversary. It's out on March 29 via Mute/BMG.

To celebrate, above, we have the first listen of a previously unreleased Richard Norris remix of ‘Drama’, included among the host of extras and rarities on the upcoming deluxe edition.

The album’s original 11 tracks have been remastered, while a bonus disc includes a glut of B-sides, remixes and rarities much of which have never been released. Unreleased tracks include an alternative mix to ‘How Many Times’ and live performances of ‘Brother and Sister’ and ‘Piano Song’ recorded at the London Arena.

The album will be packaged as a deluxe hardback double CD featuring rare images, original photography by French artists Pierre et Gilles and brand new sleeve notes.
